In "Lili" an aspiring Imam falls in love with the beauty of the neighbourhood where he is supposed to watch over the public morals - a tale of temptation, lust and belief. "Diary of a Male Whore" tells of Esam, who works as a call-boy in Tel Aviv, but is repeatedly overcome by memories of his native village in Palestine. In "Just get Married" the Syrian student Karim has a week to marry a German woman before his residence permit expires. But German women are complicated ...

Husam Chadat will be present at the premiere of his newly finished film "Just get Married".
